Noel Gallagher describes time as that which falls from the sky, and then slips beyond our control no matter what intentions we might have in interpersonal/social contexts. In noting that time has a source which transcends the human realm over which he and other humans have greater control, Gallagher duly asks what time will hold for him.
I took a walk with my fame,
Down memory lane,
I never did find my way back.
You know that I gotta say, time’s slipping away,
And what will it hold for me.
What am I gonna do while I’m looking at you,
You’re standing ignoring me
I thought that I heard someone say now,
There’s no time for running away now,
Hey now! Hey now!
Feel no shame – cos time’s no chain,
Feel no shame.
And time as it stands,
Won’t be held in my hands,
Or living inside of my skin,
And as it fell from the sky,
I asked myself why,
Can I never let anyone in?
